Toucan of appreciation card.

Hello. Today I am sharing a card featuring the new large oval masking stencil for Time For Tea Designs.

To start the card I took the large oval stencil and lined it up using the etched guide on to my A6 card base. I then took Distress Oxide inks in Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn. Using a blending brush I blended the Twisted Citron ink lightly all over the oval space. Next I added a leaf stencil on top, leaving the oval stencil in place. This stencil is the tropical leaves stencil from Newton’s Nook. I blended a mix of Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn over the leaves. I removed the stencils and set the background aside to dry.

Next I worked on my images. I stamped the bird and branch from the Toucan Do This stamp set, coloured them with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

I adhered the images to the background with a tape runner and stamped the sentiment with black ink. To complete the card I added some sequins from Lucy’s cards for some subtle sparkle.

Take care for now.

Floral Thank You Card.

Hello.

Today I am sharing a card from an Altenew class called ‘With A Twist.’

The class was all about adding a twist to your card, something different to make it stand out and get more out of products. I chose to focus on changing up the shape of my card.

To start the card I stamped out my images ready for Copic colouring. I used stamps from the Altenew ‘Poppy Garden’ stamp set.

Once all my images were coloured it was time for the die cutting. Firstly I cut out all my coloured images with the coordinating dies. Then I took the die from the larger floral image above and lay it across the top of my card base.

I then put it between the plates on my die cutting machine but only put the top plate over the area of the die I want to partially cut and run through the machine.

This leaves the shape of the die along the top of the card.

Next I took the Altenew ‘feeling dotty’ stencil and blended some Distress Oxide ink in Picked Raspberry over the stencil blending lighter as I went down the card to fade out the pattern.

I then adhered my flowers and leaves with a tape runner and used foam pads to prop up one large floral image and add some dimension. I added a sentiment by taking a strip of black card and heat embossed the sentiment in white.

To complete the card I flicked some gold perfect pearls mixed with a little water from a small paintbrush over the card and added some sequins for some more sparkle.

Take care for now.

Merry Christmouse card

Hello.

Today I am sharing a card for Time For Tea Designs featuring some brand new products.

These products are currently available from Create and Craft TV and go live on the Time For Tea Designs website on Tuesday 26th November.

To start the card I took a piece of white cardstock and the ‘treemendous Christmas’ stencil and used a blender brush to blend Distress Oxide ink in Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron over the stencil.

I stamped and coloured the little mouse from the ‘Woodland Critters’ stamp set with my Copic Markers and used the co-ordinating die to cut him out. And gave him a little Santa hat.

I took the ‘Merry’ word die, cutting the outline shadow from the top section from the background panel and also from a piece of white card and the word from red card.

I stamped the Christmas sentiment from the ‘say anything’ stamp set and used the co-ordinating strip die to cut it out.

Next is assembling the card. I took the background panel and adhered it to a card base. Then I attached the mouse and Merry sentiment with liquid glue. I used foam pads to adhere the Christmas sentiment and to complete the card I decorated some of the trees using a black pen and some small gems.

Take care for now.

Katrina.

Simple thinking of you card

Hello. Today I am sharing a simple thinking of you card for Time For Tea Designs.

This card uses one of the brand new clear stamp sets being released tomorrow the 11th November on Create And Craft TV. Make sure you join Jo Davies live at 3pm GMT to see the full reveal of all the brand new stamps, dies and stencils, plus the new blending brushes!

To make my card I took my card base and masked off a portion to the left hand side to add ink. I used a blending brush to add Distress Oxide inks Ripe Persimmon, Carved Pumpkin and Mustard Seed. Once this was dry I stamped the sentiment using black ink.

Next I worked on my images. I stamped the cute fox and the leaves from the Woodland Critters stamp set, on to some Neenah classic crest 80lb cardstock and coloured them in with my Copic markers. I then die cut the images with the coordinating dies. I adhered the images to the card using a tape runner.

This is simple card to make. You can use any colour scheme and images. I hope this inspires you give it a try.

Take care for now

I die cut two borders from the stiched hillside dies from Lawn Fawn and added a little Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink to the edges, then adhered them to my background panel using a tape runner. I stamped the sentiment in Versafine onyx black ink.

Mermaid shaker card

Hello.

I have been so busy with my work commitments that my crafting took a back seat for a while but I am back with a shaker card using Time For Tea Designs stamps and dies to create a shaker card.

I stamped and Copic coloured images from the ‘Shell Phone’ and ‘Mermazing’ clear stamp sets and die cut them out.

Next I selected Distreas Oxide inks in Tumbld Glass, Salty Ocean and Broken China and used Picket Fence Studios blending brushes to apply the ink to two separate pieces of card to create a backgrounds. Once dry I splattered some Gansai Tambi watercolour in white gold over both pieces.

I die cut a window from one of the blended pieces of card to create a frame, then attached an acetate window to the back of the frame. I stamped the sentiment on to the acetate using Versafine ink. Stamping over three times to get a good impression. Stazon ink would have worked better but my pad needed reinking. Next I added three layers of foam tape to the back of the frame and filled it with ‘Aquamarine’ sequins from Doodles Paper Playground. I attached the background panel to the frame to crrate the shaker.

I adhered the die cut images to the front of the card and added some white opal loquid pearls, some glossy accent dots and applied some wink of stella glitter pen to the mermaids hair and tail to complete the card.

Thanks for dropping by. Take care for now.

Toucan of appreciation card.

Hello. Today I am sharing a card for Time For Tea Designs. I used two of the clear stamp sets, Toucan Do This and Moovellous.

To start the card I stamped the images out in Memento Tuxedo black ink on to Neenah classic crest solar white cardstock. I then coloured the images using my Copic markers.

Next I worked on the background. I die cut a panel from white cardstock using a stitched rectangle die from Heffy Doodle. I then used Distress Oxide inks and Picket Fence Studios blending brushes to blend a beach scene. I used Salty Ocean for the sky, Broken China for the sea and Antique Linen for the sand.

Once the background was dry I used Connect glue from Gina K Designs to adhered the images. I overlapped the leaves on the tree branch and the flowers with the leaves.

To complete the card I stamped the sentiment using Altenew obsidian black ink and adhered the panel to a card base.

I hope you like the card.

Take care for now.

Katrina.
